Best Mistakes In Films
In his “Filmgoer’s Companion”, Mr. Leslie Halliwell helpfully lists
four of the cinema’s greatest moments which you should get to see if at all
In “Carmen Jones”, the camera tracks with Dorothy Dandridge down a
street; and the entire film crew is reflected in the shop window.
In “The Wrong Box”, the roofs of Victorian London are emblazoned
with television aerials.
In “Decameron Nights”, Louis Jourdain stands on the deck of his
fourteenth century pirate ship; and a white lorry trundles down the hill
in the background.
In “Viking Queen”, set in the times of Boadicea, a wrist watch is
clearly visible on one of the leading characters.
— Stephen Pile, “The Book of Heroic Failures”
